Greetings, JamieScott, and welcome. You asked:

<<Can I transfer my IRA to my spouse by changing the name on the account without getting a QDRO >>

No, you cannot. That would be a gift which would be considered as a taxable distribution to you. Additionally, it would be considered as an annual contribution to an IRA by your spouse, and that is subject to the earned income and $2K limitation.
